Country Store

Sale items must be the property of the seller and should be in condition befitting the reputation of the Guild.


Participants Agreement and Inventory sheets will be collected on Thursday, October 6, 2022. Be sure to make a copy for yourself.  (See left-hand column to download.)

FQG accepts no responsibility for any items lost, stolen or damaged. Items are not covered by any insurance. Every year there are stolen, lost or unaccounted for items. This has not been a significant problem, but the possibility exists.

Important Dates and Times

Drop-off:   Thursday, October 6, 2022.  All sale items must be dropped off between 11am and 1pm at Auburn Regional Park – Lakeside Room 3770 Richardson Drive, along with your signed participation form. NO EXCEPTIONS!   Submission of items for sale indicates acceptance of the guidelines.

You must check in with the inventory control person. She will verify your participation by checking the work schedule. Once you are checked in, you will be responsible for distributing your merchandise on the designated tables.

Please leave at least one cardboard or tote box with your name and member number clearly marked; we will use these at teardown for un-sold items.   You may leave other boxes stowed under the tables, as long as you have your name on them, but we are not responsible for them.

Please report 10 minutes before the start of your shift. Wear your name tag.

Pick-up:   Saturday, October 8, 2022 between the hours of 4:00pm – 5:00pm.

Name your price

At our Country Store you name the price -- you keep 75% and the Guild takes 25% for commission. Reminder: we have done away with the half-off sale.

The all-important price tag

Use only the price tags provided. (See left-hand column to download.)

Member numbers are in the membership roster.

The inventory number should correspond with your inventory sheet.

The sales price includes the Guild’s 25% commission.

Securely attach the upper section of the price tag to the sale item. Secure with 2” wide packing tape, a minimum of 2 staples per item or a safety pin -- whatever it takes to keep it on! If you staple tags to fabric, though, do it in the selvage so you don’t create holes in the fabric. Price tags that can be easily removed can be easily lost! NO TAG = NO SALE!

Price tags on softcover books or magazines go inside the front cover. If multiple magazines are grouped, put them in a clear plastic bag or tie them together securely.   Use staples for price tags. We are not selling hardcover books.  No hardcover books will be accepted.

The bottom section of the price tag gets cut off at the time of sale and is our inventory control tag.

Suggestions for a better sale

● Bundle fat quarters by color or patterns

● Bundle magazines and tie with string or place into a plastic bag

● Mark yardage amounts on fabric, as well as the type of fabric

● Enclose small items in Ziploc bags, use at least two staples to adhere tags

● Make $.50 the minimum sale price

● Make scrap gallon bags of fabric instead of many small sandwich size bags -- they sell!

Planning ahead

Fillable pdf files should be able to be saved. If you want to start pricing and inventorying items throughout the year, check to be sure, or you can use the regular pdf files and fill in by hand; or the Word document and save it on your computer. The Word document has been formatted as a table, so you don’t have to worry about lines.

October 7-8, 2022 Country Store Guidelines

Due to the limited number of volunteers, all participants are required to work a minimum of two 2-hour shifts during the Quilt Show. Your items will not be accepted unless you have registered with Judie Pieper or Betty Dillman and signed up to work.  Register by contacting either Judie or Betty by October 5, 2022.

The Country Store will be in the Lakeside Room.  Due to the size of this room, it may not be possible to place all your items on the table at the start of the sale.  We will add items from under the tables as space allows.  Please accept the guidance of Betty or Judie as we work to accommodate everyone and everything.  


Payments

Checks for items sold will be issued after a financial statement has been prepared. Participants may pick up their check at the November Guild meeting. If not in attendance, checks will be mailed in a timely manner.

Call if you have any questions...we're looking forward to another successful year!

Judie Pieper 916-337-0617 or Betty Dillman 530-613-0664
